The Chief Medical Officer provided new advice around self-isolation on 16 March 2020 and Public Health England have updated their web pages so please review the updated information online
The advice remains that you should self-isolate at home for seven days if you have a recent onset of:
• A new continuous cough and/or
• High temperature
However, in addition, anyone living with someone who is self-isolating should now stay at home for at least 14 days to avoid spreading the infection outside of the home.
